Blockbuster Rentals: Overpriced

What the fudge is going on with Blockbuster. I went there today to rent a Wii game and found myself paying $8 for a five, yes, FIVE day rental. Since when did Blockbuster start charging an arm and a leg to rent games? Given I haven't rented a game since the first year of release of the PS2, I guess things have changed dramatically in the rental business.

I'm guessing they're trying to keep up with sites like Gamefly, and the only way they can do it is by over charging. Wow, this may be the last time I rent a game from there.

Think about it, for the same price of renting a game for a month and a half, you can actually buy the game...

How am I supposed to do my "try before buy" approach if it costs this much. Maybe I should rely more on some of my friends to lend me their games. I'm not made of money.

In lighter news, I rented Super Paper Mario, and will have a review of it by the end of the five days. Even though no one reads my blog, at least not yet.
